Inflammatory Response of Skeletal Muscles to a High-Fat Diet

SUMMARY Background. The prolonged consumption of a high-fat diet (HFD) leads to abnormal growth of the adipose tissue, development of obesity and low-grade inflammation. However, the data about dietary-induced inflammation in muscles is scarce. Therefore, we estimated the inflammatory response to a HFD of different skeletal muscles in a rat model. Materials and methods. Eight-week-old male Wistar rats … Continued
